The Orlando Sentinel reported that the winning bid came from a John Smith in Alabama. Initially seven users bid on the Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol, but that number has since been corrected to nine users bidding over 180 times.

The site that auctioned the gun, UnitedGunGroup, released a statement via Twitter:
